AND…Saturday Afternoon Open Thread. See, we CAN chew gum and blog at the same time!
Anyway, Bunk has a great post in Special Report on Fed Chair Ben. Do check it out.
Week 3 NCAA Football:
‘Bama needs to be real careful today at Arkansas (1530 est). The Razor Backs are a quality team and are fired up to knock off their SEC rival. Alabama is giving 20 points in Reno. I might go against this line.
In other interesting match-ups:
12:30 PM Presbyterian at Vanderbilt…that’s right. The Presbyterians have a football team and they will be praying hard against the mostly Baptist Vanderbilt side. Can the high-church prevail? I think not. Oddly, there are no odds on this game!
3:30 PM Navy at Penn State…GO NANY! BEAT PSU!!! (That was tough for an Army guy to chant…) PSU is giving 7 to Navy.
6:00 PM No. 18 Florida at No. 23 Tennessee always a great game. The Gators are my favorite FL team, but in this game I will be singin’ Rocky Top! TN is giving 3. This should be fun.
6:30 PM Ohio at Marshall If you get this game try to watch it. Should be some quality football. Ohio wins this in a close one.
7:30 PM No. 2 USC at No. 21 Stanford…GO CARDINAL!!!! USC is still over rated and over ranked. I would love to see Stanford pull this out. Stanford is a 9 point dog at home. I just can’t see Stanford wining this, I can maybe see them covering the spread. USC will need to play some SEC teams to convince me that they are for real. The PAC-12 is weak. Stanford’s Defense will wear out in the 4th.
8:00 PM No. 20 Notre Dame at No. 10 Michigan State. Now THIS should be a fine football game. MSU is 6 point favorite at home. Look for a quality win here by the Spartans.
10:00 PM No. 25 Brigham Young at Utah. Utah is a 3.5 point favorite at home. I think Utah can win this. They need to after last year’s thrashing. This is a picke ‘em in Vegas. Mu money goes on Utah.
10:30 PM South Carolina State at No. 24 Arizona. This is another pick ‘em. And I pick the Gamecocks! The SEC is deep and talented. The Pac-dozen, not so much.
